Useful Information In and Out of the Classroom 11/4/22

Here are some interesting sites that I’ve found this week, thanks to my PLN. As a teacher, I feel we have to keep up to date concerning research in our field and current issues in the education system. I hope some of these inspire you, inform you, and even have you asking questions. Thank you for coming by and visiting!

Note: Each resource is labeled with a level and subject area to make it easier to use.

Levels: E: Elementary; M: Middle; H: High; G: General, all levels; SN: Special Needs; T: Teachers

Subject Areas: LA: Language Arts, English, Reading, Writing; M: Math; S: Science; Health; SS: Social Studies, Current Events; FA: Fine Arts; Music, Art, Drama; FL: Foreign Language; PE: Physical Ed; C: Career; A: All

Word It Out - “Transform your text into word clouds!” (L:G;SA:A)

Student Interactives - “Engage your students in online literacy learning with these interactive tools that help them accomplish a variety of goals -- from organizing their thoughts to learning about language -- all while having fun.”(L:G;SA:LA)

Meet Your Tonsils - “Has your doctor ever asked you to stick out your tongue and say "ah"? They're probably checking out your tonsils! But what are your tonsils, and what do they do?” (L:E;SA:S)

Create a Canvas - “We’re excited to share our newest tool: Canvas! Canvas resources are just as they sound: a blank space for you to express your own creativity and make your Learning Lab collections more personalized and aligned to the needs of your classroom. With Canvas, you can create unique combinations of images, text, lines, shapes, and templates to appear as a single resource in your and your students’ Learning Lab collections. And, Canvas resources can be copied from one collection to another, so you can build upon the work of your friends and colleagues.” (L:T;SA:A)

Applications of Math - by topic or industry (L:T;SA:M)
